We present an inspection tool that searches and graphically represents a medical school curriculum inventory. This curriculum inspector uses the durations of scheduled events (sessions) to weight the mappings of event-level objectives with course- and program-level objectives.  This time-based weighting allows us to visualize the connections between our curricular content and our program competencies in order to understand how competencies are distributed across the curriculum and where topics are addressed. While we have built our curriculum inspector to integrate with the Ilios curriculum management system, it could be integrated with other systems as well as the standard AAMC curriculum inventory upload file format.
